Sophie Coryndon, Honeymoon, UK, 2016

Unavailable

About

Honeymoon, 2016, a cast bronze sphere with a faceted honeycomb texture is the first in a series based on 18th century witch balls. Spinning like a ballroom mirror ball, Honeymoon is suspended and lit from within using LEDs. It rotates on a vertical axis creating a pattern of lights from its internal LED light source while simultaneously reflecting its intricate facets when lit externally. As the artist can work on a commission basis, Honeymoon can be scaled up or down and patinated in any permutation of metal color. Shown singularly or in a grouping, Honeymoon is a mesmerizing work. Coryndon’s work is inspired by elements of the natural world and rooted in historical aesthetics ranging from Renaissance tapestry to the influential Bloomsberry group. Croydon works and lives in the same area as the Bloomsbury Group at South Downs National Park, thus continuing the spirit of the quiet revolution against tradition in favor of natural sustainability. Imaginative and innovative, Coryndon has forged a successful career of combining traditional Craft skills and specialist finishing techniques in a Fine art realm. Often material and process driven, employing multiple disciplines such as bronze casting, painting, embroidery and sculpture, her work has found a large audience with collectors and designers internationally. Coryndon, who says that natural forms are always at the heart of her work, became interested in bees after reading about the rising detriment facing the insects around the world today. In an effort to capture abandoned “ghost ship hives” Corydon is using lost wax casting, an ancient and seldom used technique. Coryndon spent her formative years working alongside her father at the legendary Coryndon Cabinet Makers. Like the Omega artists who came out of the Bloomsberry group and also rebelled against the plainness of mass produced consumer goods, Coryndon took the traditional applications of her royal cabinetmaker father and expanded them through experimental processes that push the possibilities between decorative and Fine art. Measures: 24 H x 24 W x 24 D inches.
